Gratitude

It has been a little crazy around here, and frankly I’ve been up and down about a situation that will soon be resolved.  Let’s just say my ego has been through the shredder.  But spring and change are coming, and the end to this difficult situation will soon be here.   I can’t wait!

I have had a lot of sychronicities and pings coming back, letting me know I’m on the right track.   But it’s been hard.   I’ve been yanked through a door, blundering around in the dark, but every time I get low something comes along to cheer me up:  an email from a friend, a timely article, even some recurring numbers (which may sound a bit too New Age, but it works for me).  And though it’s been tough, both my husband and I are in proximity to a very sad situation of one of our acquaintances, which shows me how much worse it could be.

I was thinking the other day, If I were someone else that wanted to help me, what would help the most? The thing that has helped me the most is encouragement, faith, and confidence that it will all turn out all right.  So to all my friends, and to my husband and daughter especially, thank you so much in the past few weeks for all your words of encouragement.  I have been needy and insecure, and I am grateful for the wonderful people that are part of my life.

And if you, who is reading this now, feels sad, uncertain, anxious, and afraid, I just want to say it will get better.  It’s been a hard winter and sometimes our personal life lessons are tough–but things change.  Winter changes to spring, snow melts, the sun comes back.  Though sometimes life seems pointless and empty, there is so much more.  Turn off the t.v., put down the fantasy novel, and stop eating crap–then feel a moment of silent peace grow within your heart.  If you’re afraid of what will come up if you don’t keep occupying your mind, believe that you can work through it.   I know you can.  We all are capable of great things, you and I.  And we are all together on this earth.

I write about life, people, and the things that interest in me. Which often includes death, sex, friendship, and the future of humanity. I hope for the best in people and I prepare for the worst. But no matter what happens, change is constant and everything will be ok.
